Too many dollars, not enough sense

So Leona Helmsley's dog gets $12 million in a trust fund in her will. Seriously. As a lawyer, I can't imagine what kind of attorney would write that down without saying "Really? Leona, you're batshit crazy. Get the hell out of my office and get some psychiatric help." But then again, that's part of why I don't practice law any more. Too often you have to do stupid things in the name of "the client is always right." Trust me, litigation clients are just as often nutjobs as they are "right" - especially the ones who want to sue somebody. It always made me nuts when people blamed lawywers for the litigation explosion. I spent 90% of my time in new client interviews talking people OUT of suing.

But. I digress. $12 million DOLLARS. I just bought mine new Nylabones and some liver treats and thought I was being generous . . .

Ethan is giving me fits; he's so freaking alpha that he's not quite getting the big picture. But oh, wow, is he ever sexy! Whew.

In other news, I'm sick with some cold or flu virus that's kicking my butt, so am taking my codeine cough syrup and off to bed. Hope you all have a great Labor Day long weekend.
hugs,
Alyssa

Welcome to Florida, Alyssa! Hope you found your palm trees and that you feel better over the weekend. Probably the stress of moving made you sick.
